The Avengers Passes $600 Million Domestically

Clark Gregg in The Avengers (2012) Movie Character PosterJoss Whedon’s “The Avengers” took the 8th spot at the box office over the weekend, just barely losing out on the 6th spot to “Rock of Ages” and “That’s my Boy” by about $500,000. The comic book movie still earned over $7 million in its eighth week of release, and combined with Monday and today’s tally, means “The Avengers” has now surpassed $600 million domestically, and $838.9 million Internationally.

Here’s Disney pounding their chest:

Marvel’s The Avengers is expected to cross the $600 million domestic box office threshold today, becoming one of only three films in history ever to reach this milestone. The Super Hero film’s global total is now an estimated $1,438.3 million, and it stands as the #3 film of all time globally and domestically.

Marvel’s The Avengers opened in North America May 4 with a staggering $207.4 million – the biggest domestic debut of all time – and has been shattering domestic box office records ever since including the industry’s all-time second weekend record with $103 million; fastest film to reach $200 million (3 days), $300 million (9 days), $400 million (14 days), and $500 million (23 days); and highest Saturday ($69.5 million) and Sunday ($57 million) totals. It is the #4 film of all time internationally with $838.9 million.

Among only 12 films that have grossed $1 billion at the global box office, Marvel’s The Avengers is one of five billion-dollar Disney releases, which also include Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Alice in Wonderland, Disney•Pixar’s Toy Story 3, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

Conclusion? CHA-CHING!
